Re: BioShield 75 Swine
Flu Efficacy, etc
The mechanical efficacy
of this molecule has been successfully displayed
over a 30 year period. The molecule of BioShield
75 and ProShield 5000D works by forming
a permanent microbiostatic film on a substrate
and then creates a bed of microscopic spikes
that pierce the cell membrane of microbes
that come into contact with a treated surface.
The molecule then releases an electrical
charge that electrocutes positive and negative
charged microbes. This "twin effect" prevents
these microbes from further growth or reproduction,
without creating "superbugs".
The CDC has recently stated
that antimicrobials that have been shown
to be effective against viruses like Influenza
A. The CDC further stated that antimicrobials
that are effective against Influenza A will
be effective against the H1N1 virus.
In as much as the H1N1
virus is a subtype of Influenza virus A
and is structurally similar, it is our considered
opinion that BioShield 75 and ProShield
5000D will be very effective in limiting
the growth of the microbes that carry H1N1.
BioShield 75 is effective
in stopping the growth of bacteria, mold
and fungi. The molecule in BioShield 75
has been tested effectively against many
viruses. While BioShield 75 is effective
against most viruses, it is not effective
against Norovirus and the canine parvovirus
because of their unique molecular construction.
They do not have the typical protein coat
or fatty envelope typically associated with
most viruses and that are easily punctured
by BioShield 75's microscopic spikes.
Once BioShield 75 has been
allowed to dry on a given surface (usually
three to five minutes) it will remain on
the surface for an extended period of time.
We recommend replacing it every 90 days
on touch points that are cleaned daily.
Normal cleaning products do not affect BioShield
75; it can only be broken down by abrasion.
We assume some abrasion will take place
from normal daily cleaning.
BioShield 75 can be purchased
